A state of the art all terrain wheelchair is now available for Central Hawke's Bay residents to access local beaches and walking tracks.
Funding for the $10,500 wheelchair was made possible thanks to funding from the Waipukurau Rotary Club, Takapau Lions and the Hastings District Masonic Trust, working in conjunction with the Central Hawke’s Bay District Council.
The Council spoke with a number of organisations about various all-terrain options.
The new wheelchair can be used on the beach, trails, forest walks and parks, is easily transportable, can go into the water and has interchangeable wheels for either beach or land use.
 
Deputy Mayor Kelly Annand said Council’s role is to advocate and facilitate community initiatives like this, and support them in practical ways.
The All Terrain Wheelchair will be kept at the Centralines Sports Complex and will be available to hire at no cost.

A film that tells the story of the Polish Pahiatua Children will screen as a fundraiser to help families who have had to escape the Ukranian War.
Many families have fled Ukraine for the Polish town of Kazimierz Dolny – Pahiatua’s Twin Town.

All money raised from this film screening will go directly to a fund administered by the Mayor of Kazimeirz Dolny for the displaced Ukrainians living there. 
The movie will screen at the Pahiatua Regent Theatre tomorrow (June 4) and on Sunday (June 5) at 11am, followed by the Dannevirke Regent Theatre on June 11 at 11am.
